Prior to her funeral at Westminster Abbey on September 19, the Queen will lay in state for four days. During that period, the casket will be available for public viewing.
Prior to that, the Queen will lie in state in St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh for a whole day on Monday, September 12, during which time visitors may pay their respects.
At 11:00 BST, her state funeral will be attended by her family, lawmakers, and international leaders. A bank holiday will be observed.
The Queen’s final journey began on Sunday with her own attendants escorting her to a hearse that will convey her to Edinburgh in her oak coffin, which was carried by her Balmoral gamekeepers.
Thousands of spectators lined the road to Edinburgh as the Queen’s casket departed from her favorite Balmoral Castle. The funeral cortege has passed Dundee in its six-hour trek. As the hearse is being taken to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, oblivious bystanders have begun hurling flower tributes in its path.
The Queen will lie in state at Westminster Hall starting on Wednesday after the coffin arrives in London on Tuesday. On Monday, September 19, a holiday, Westminster Abbey in London will host the funeral service for The Queen. The coronation of Charles III took place on Saturday in London during a formal ceremony.
Members of the Royal Family will accompany it when it travels to St. Giles’ Cathedral on Monday afternoon. In order for visitors to pay their respects, there will be a service and the coffin will remain here for 24 hours.
